Temporomandibular Joint disorder (TMD) is a problem affecting the chewing muscles and joints between the lower jaw and the base of the skull. Up to 25% of adults suffer from TMD at some stage in life – with symptoms ranging from face, jaw or neck and shoulder pain, headaches and painful clicking in the jaw.
Here at the Dentists of Didsbury, we can offer you advice on how to better manage your symptoms and options for treatment.
Treatments range from simple steps like warm compresses to more complex hard splint therapy which help place the jaws in a more muscle-relaxed position to relieve symptoms.
You can talk to us today to take that important first step towards day and night-time relief from the painful symptoms of TMD.
